Don't worry about a heater core. Just do what the nitwits around here do. They put a coal stove in them Dodges.

Look up LMCtruck.com on the net.
Specializes in 1972 to 1993 Dodge trucks.
Never bought anything from them but they do seem to have a long list of parts.

I owned some Chrysler products from that era, worked on Chrysler vehicles from then, and replaced some heater cores, repaired AC systems, amongst other things. One of the more popular things was to replace the 440 "lean Burn" system with a performance ignition and fuel system.

Part numbers in each division were different, but Chrysler did not have the money or vehicle sales to design a variety of different parts for each model. They used common parts whenever possible across all 3 divisions.

It is very unlikely that heater core or AC system was designed specifically for pickups. The air conditioned pickup sales volume was so low, I am sure they adapted the AC/heating system from something else, probably a medium sized sedan.

You need to find someone with a cross reference book, or shop manuals so you can compare, or match up at a cooperative radiator shop.

I have a 1976 Dodge pickup that I needed a charging regulator for. I stopped at the local auto parts store thinking that they would have to order one, to my surprise they said oh we stock those.
It has a plastic gas tank, it had a crack at the top. There are two different tanks, 18 and 20 gal. I don't know why they would make two different tanks so close to the same size. I could not find one anywhere, called the dealer and the only one in the US was at a dealer in Iowa, but it was a 18 and mine is a 20. Since the crack was at the top I ended up taking the tank off and used a soldering iron and melted the crack back together.
